Encaustic and a cheese wax heart

Okay.  Remember when I confessed that I save and use the red wax from Bonbel cheese and used it for this project:
 Well, I pulled more out from my stash and formed a wee heart.  I then gathered straw (from an old broom) and wrapped it with red thread.  A simple but careful blast with a craft heat gun, and it melted into the heart.
I attached vintage book paper to a grey tag.  Then I dipped it into melted bees wax and pressed a rubber stamp into the cooling wax.  That's the relief you see in the lower right corner.  I then adorned it with a leaf and stamped air-dry clay.  This tag will probably end up as part of a journal page.
